    hello joe!

    well im very sure that the red parts were painted using Mechrite Red paint with a Red Gore highlight. the helmet is definitly painted skull white but in the recesses i think it has a red gore or maybe mechrite red wash?

    hope this helps

    It could be a brown ink wash. I don't think it is skull white but rather a bone white. Maybe a little skull white for the extreme highlights....

    Slow year? How did these win golden demon? I mean, they're good (better than what I'm painting at the moment, thats for sure), but from these pics they don't really seem golden demon quality.

    Especially the terminators. Thats a very thick highlight he's got going there! What happened to blending? They don't look finished.


    (Oh, and a warning about this years Australian golden demon, some of the mini's in there will be awesome, but I feel that there will be some winners that are, well, not so great. Was having a look at the entries, and wasn't that impressed with many that made it through to the final judging. Probably the direct result of releasing codex: chaos marines and apocalypse around the same time as the painting comp )

    Unwanted rant over. :p


    As for the red on the Crimson Templars, I'd say he started with a scab red base (maybe a little black mixed in) and slowly blended up with blood red. I'd almost say the very edges had tiny (tiny) amount of bleached bone mixed in, they look like there's a slight creamy/pink tint there, using this guy as a base to go by:

    My skitarii red is almost the same colour (although I tend to go a little brighter in the end).

    As for the white, hard to say. Maybe a base coat of bleached bone or probably deneb stone, with a wash of something brownish. Then he might have 'blacklined' more bleached bone over the top, and blending that up with skull white for that creamy white effect. I tend to paint my whites from fortress or codex grey, so i'm not sure.


    Then again, I could be completely wrong on everything! Just havin' a go

    Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.

    I saw these in person. They actually look very nice. Keep in mind the pictures are blown up and they are known for not taking the best pictures to begin with.

    And its staff. Not the top-of-the-cream GD painters.
    As for the painting, I agree with the Cadaver. Some experimenting with scab red, black and blood red (possibly a small ammount of red gore) should do the trick. Also, Vallejos' Crimson Red could be a good colour.

    You don't highlight white. You shade it.
    To me it looks like the white has been painted over some light brown, covered with Bleached Bone and then highlighted with pure white.

    Also, for the armor I'm wondering if the highlight color isn't Tanned or Dark Flesh (looks like that to me).

    i would have to agree about the white, i do a lot of my white over brown or ice blue, so that i don't have to use a wash, it looks about like that.
